Sudan: President concedes blame for genocide
Thursday 21 April 2011
The President of Sudan has conceded full responsibility for the genocide in Darfur in which around 300,000 people died.
In his first interview with the Western media, Omar Bashir said: "I am the President, so I am responsible about everything happening in the country."
But he accused the International Criminal Court of "double standards" and a "campaign of lies".
He added that Britain and other Western countries were pursuing a politically-motivated vendetta against him with the ultimate aim of forcing regime change in Sudan as well as in neighbouring Libya.
